What I wore to the Christmas Ball

Don we now our gay apparel

Christmas festivities are occasions to dress up. I bought this red dress from a vendor at the Apple Butter Festival this fall. (100% cotton, made in Peru.) I have the same dress in white which I wore in the summer; in red it was perfect for the Christmas Ball. My red polkadot shoes are a gift from my dear friend Roxanne.

Baby, it’s cold outside! 

These are busy days and I want to take time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year! I hope to write during the holidays, however, I’m getting ready for a trip to Seattle to visit our daughter Jean and this might be my last chance for the year to write. With all the hustle and bustle of the season, let’s remember the true meaning of Christmas and share love, peace and hope.

May the joy of the Christmas season warm your hearts all through the year!

PS. I have a draft prepared to post during the Christmas holidays that I hope you will enjoy – Teddy Bear Christmas

    What a wonderful red dress and what beautiful shoes! Who can dress this beautiful dress better than you? No one! I love the long and the neckline, with that traditional Central American look. Red is such a Christmas color, red is a color so yours, beauty and elegance is something so yours!
